How to publish your VR experience directly to your website

Developing our features and providing good quality is our biggest aim. Our new update brings us one step closer to this, so we are happy to announce our new Direct Publishing feature.

Virtual Reality has an immediate transporting effect and can revolutionize the website experience by affecting emotions and creating a very unique atmosphere. Recently, we've released the new VRdirect Builder Version 1.5.1, which means you can now publish your VR experience instantly, without any waiting time. Beyond the Direct Publishing feature there are some new user interface updates with new icons giving an appealing finish to the user.


Use the Web VR player to publish your experience on your website


The VRdirect Web  player can easily be integrated in any webpage by embedding just a few lines of code. Once you published your experience in the VRdirect Builder, the iframe will automatically be created. Basically, you only have to copy the whole code and paste it in the source code of your website. Your website visitors will be able to play around with your interactive 360°/VR experience without having to download the app.

This new feature enables you to save time and become more independent by publishing your experience unlisted and instantly test it in a live environment. If you want your users to get the full immersive experience, you can send them the experience code or a deeplink (you can find it in the slot management within the VRdirect Builder). All they have to do is to click the link or enter the code in the search bar of the VRdirect App and hit play.


To access the direct publishing feature, simply open the builder software and allow it to update to the newest version 1.5.1. If you do not have the VRdirect Builder or if you don't own a license yet, sign up for your free trial license and download the software for free.
